I’m a Nutritional Consultant, Illustrator, health and fitness enthusiast and I love to cook healthy food. I try to avoid sugar and grain but I'm not always 100% stickler to the rules. *gasp*
I always try to create recipes that are healthy that the whole family can enjoy.
Also, I like to just post great recipes. Not a history of the recipe, if my friends and neighbours liked it, how many acrobats were harmed in making the recipe or zillions of photos of said recipes. Keeping it simple.
